[Abstract]: Despite the enormous impact of change on human resource development, it is still largely considered as being 'that part of human resource management that deals with training and development'. This presentation will propose that not only is HRD much more than training and development, but that change is the main reason a need for HRD exists. It will then argue that by using a conventional paradigm framework for static change environments and a contemporary paradigm framework for dynamic change environments, we can categorise specific characteristics that influence how HRD is approached within organisations
